So do you all think this is an old wives tale or true?
I had my first ultrasound today and we were so lucky to see the lil heartbeat flickering. They measured it at 127 and according to the wives tale under 140 would be boy and over that is a girl. What has been your experience??
I'm prego w a boy, and his heartbeat so far has been around 140-145...ish. Before we found out the sex, I would ask my Dr. what the heartrate was when we'd listen...and she'd go..."you know you can't determine the sex based on the hb, right?" Haha...she knew exactly what I was doing! I don't know though...I've seen many women on here right that their baby's hb followed that tale...
My friend had a boy and his heart beat was always between 150-160.
I had an ultrasound done t 6 weeks 5 days and the heartbeat was 126. My doctor said it is normal because it just started beating it might go up and it might not. I go back in tomorrow for an ultrasound at 8 weeks 5 days so I guess I will see if it went up or not.
At 6 weeks 5 days my baby's heartbeat was 127 just like yours. I went at 8 weeks and it was between 150 and 160. Like someone said before, they could be sleeping or up moving and that really can make a diff. in the heartbeat!
Today at 13 weeks the heartbeat was between 156 and 160. Doctor said he coudl hear him/her do a summersault! It's tempting since the heartbeat has been high twice to wonder if baby is a girl, but i am really just assuming he or she is very active!!!
My baby's heartrate was 125 at my 7 week ultrasound. I am now 29 weeks and she ranges anywhere between 130-160. It is absolutely an old wive's tale. Good luck to you. Let us know if you find out what you are having! :)
I went for my ultrasound at 9w2days, my babies heartbeat was 182. I went today and I'm 12w1day and it was in the 170's. I took the intelligender test at 10weeks and it said I was having a BOY! Who know's! What do you think?
